Great way to see the city
Our group of 6 people did a 4 hour private tour with Tom. The tour was not only enjoyable from a GOT perspective, but it was a great way to see the city. If I were to do it over, I would go on this tour my first day in Dubrovnik and use the tour as a way of determining what I would want to explore in more detail on my own. The tour was more than just GOT fun, it was a great way to learn about the city's history. You see a lot in a short amount of time. Another tip, be clear at the beginning of the tour how much real history vs. GOT fun you want to digest. Overall it was a really fun way to see the sites.
Great experience especially for GOT fans
Tonka (Tom's sister) took us on this tour and shared wonderful insights both into the locations/settings used in GOT as well as the happenings on set, as she herself was present on the sets, as an artist.
Tonka also had a photo album book that helped us relate the locations with the specific GOT scenes/episodes. She was patient and explained well. She also did her best to answer the numerous questions we had.
Great experience - a must do in Dubrovnik especially if you are a GOT fan.
Great touring company that goes an extra mile
Our private tour experience of the city of Dubrovnik and of Lokrum Island with Tonka was a special one, and both her and Tom provided an excellent customer service experience that remains close to unrivaled from my travels. There was the right amount of balance between history and Game of Thrones for my girlfriend and I, who are fans of the show. I am confident that any tour of theirs would be adjusted based on your interests as well.
I would first like to compliment a great customer service experience. Our flight to Dubrovnik from Zagreb had been cancelled, and so we were sent on buses to the area, arriving at 3 AM, about 12 hours later than planned. Because of this, our morning tour with Tonka was in great danger. Fortunately, they were able to help us out by moving the start by a few hours, and I cannot thank them enough for that, as it allowed us to enjoy our tour to the maximum with enough rest. During this ordeal, Tom and Tonka remained in close communication via email, even in the early hours of the morning. I do not want to promote flexibility on their end, but given our circumstances, it was much appreciated.
For the tour itself, Tonka displayed great energy and enthusiasm, which we also appreciated. It was cool to learn about and see her appearances on the show, and she carried around a helpful picture book of show scenes that paralleled what we were seeing in person. She was incredibly gracious to take pictures when we asked, and even insisted on the best photo opportunities at times. She was also very knowledgeable on all aspects of Croatia's history and the show's details, particularly as it related to the King's Landing and Qarth scenes filmed here. I should also highlight that the sights of Dubrovnik were just absolutely beautiful, and Lokrum Island was a nice additional stop, where we were able to see an Iron Throne replica and swim in a lagoon there. The private nature of the tour, though costing slightly more than competitors' larger group tours, was entirely worth it, as you get some ability to customize your journey to your liking. This tour was easily the highlight of our time in Dubrovnik and arguably of our entire time in Croatia and Slovenia. Whether or not you are a fan of the show, I am confident you will find this private tour to your liking, with tour guides who are genuine and enthusiastic.

Great guide with an insight to the GOT filming!
We were a party of 6 and decided to book the Game of Thrones in Dubrovnik. Our guide was Tonka and she was excellent! She is so nice, smiling and energetic! She has made this tour very enjoyable. Booking was easy and straightforward. The service was professional, as was our driver who took us at nice spots for pictures before the actual GoT tour. Then, we went in the city for the tour which was really interesting, especially if you're a GoT fan. Also, Tonka participated in the filming of some GoT scenes, so we had special "behind the scene" infos, which was great! Thanks for such a nice tour!
Great service and wonderful guides
Everything about this tour was exceptional. My initial enquiry to Tom was replied to very quickly and booking the tour was very efficient. We met Karmen at the very well explained meeting point for first part of the tour in the old town. She was incredibly knowledgeable about the city as well as Game of Thrones. She shared so many interesting facts about the show, showing us all the various filming locations and explaining how scenes were put together. I have a fear of heights which she managed to work round and also offered us some great advice about walking the city walls as I was nervous about doing this. Karmen also recommended a couple of restaurants which were great and when she discovered my husband works for a brewery she pointed out a little craft beer place. After this part of the tour Karmen took us to meet Neno for the second part of the tour. Neno drove us up to a stunning viewpoint and pointed out another filming location. We then set off for the Trsteno arboretum, we arrived to discover it had been closed due to very high winds. Neno was so apologetic, it was completely out with anyone organising the tours control but we were only charged for the first part of the tour which we felt was very decent of the company. Neno also dropped us back to our hotel rather than in the old town which was hugely appreciated. Both Neno and Karmen are fabulous guides, full of knowledge about both GoT and the history of the city and country. The advice about restaurants, things to see and how to tackle walking the walls all meant that not only did we have a great time on the tour with them we thoroughly enjoyed the rest of our time in Dubrovnik. Thank-you.

Game of Thrones and history
I would highly recommend the GOT tour organized by Tour The Game of Thrones. We got barrels of GOT enthusiasm and knowledge and also some interesting historical facts on the city too. Our tour guide, Tomislav M., made the guided wander through the city very relaxed, humourous and interesting; I would highly recommend Tom as your guide!
